Paddlers will usually be invoiced monthly in arrears for each session they attended.
Please click on link to see fees due for January to August.
To join in with the CR CATS Pinkston sessions on a Thursday on a regular basis, you need to be a full or associate member of CR CATS.
The session cost per paddler is Water £6 and coaching £2. These sessions are run to break even for the water fees. We, therefore, need about 12 people to cover the pump costs for an hour and about 18 people to cover the pump cost for 1.5 hours.
The standard Session Time is 18:30 – 20:00. The reduced Session Time is 19:00 – 20:00. The latest session times will be shown in the blurb at the top of each doodle poll. We will try to send out an e-mail if the time changes.
